A PLACE TO GATHER WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Welcome to Parkmore..
The comforts of home surrounded by breathtaking scenery. A welcome escape from hectic lives. A place to gather with family and friends in the heart of Speyside Scotland. At Parkmore we love to provide all of this at our peaceful and tranquil resort.
Parkmore holiday cottages are a collection of holiday homes formed by the conversion of the steadings, farmhouse and bothy at Parkmore Farm. Sympathetically rebuilt, the cottages retain many of the original features including exposed beams, wood panelling and other original woodwork.
Set in open countryside just 3km from Dufftown, Parkmore enjoys stunning views towards the Grampian Mountains to the front and the Haggieshaw Forest bordering the grounds behind.
EXPLORE THE MAGIC OF
Speyside & Uisge Betha…
Welcome to Malt Whisky Country. The fast flowing rivers and spectacular rolling farmlands provide the raw ingredients for the world renowned Speyside Malt.
Uisge Betha, the Gaelic word for whisky meaning ‘The Water of Life’ provides the backdrop for a magical journey through enchanted Speyside glens to visit the distilleries where the water, malted barley and yeast is combined to produce an array of malts, each with its own distinctive flavour.
EXPLORE THE MAGIC OF
Dufftown & Malt Whisky Country…
Dufftown without a doubt is the capital of malt whisky country with no less than seven distilleries. You can visit The Glenfiddich Distillery – the only Highland single malt whisky that is distilled, matured and bottled at its own distillery.
Join the free guided tour which will explain how the whisky is made and of course sample a ‘wee dram’ at the end. You can then join ‘Scotland’s Malt Whisky Trail’ which will take you to another six famous distilleries including Strathisla Distillery – Home of Chivas Regal. There is also the Speyside Cooperage which demonstrates traditional barrel making skills.
